Event description
A Public Lecture by Professor Mike Lucock

About this Event

It is well known that anxiety and depression are very common and that some people experience these problems for many years. In recent years there has been an increased awareness of various ways in which people can be supported to overcome or manage these problems, including self-help approaches. Despite this, many people are unwilling or unable to disclose their mental health problems and seek help, and when help is sought waiting times for psychological therapy can be long. Also, health professionals often lack the confidence and knowledge to effectively support people with mental health problems. This lecture will explore the ways in which all professionals, and friends and families, can support the self-management of common mental health problems. It will draw on research carried out at the University of Huddersfield with the NHS and includes the views of service users on what helps them to stay well after psychological therapy for depression, and from professionals working in primary care and psychological therapies services.

Speaker: Professor Mike Lucock

Professor of Clinical Psychology and Associate Director of Research in the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

The Lecture begins at 6.30pm with complimentary refreshments served from 6.00.
